There may be occasions where specific personal information is requested before an individual can enter certain sections of the Site. For example, registration is needed to enter online payment control panels or to participate in any Diallog online forums or blogs, contests, surveys or related online initiatives. This kind of registration helps us to ensure that content standards on these sections of the site are rigorously upheld or that contact can be made with users to inform them of new updates. Information requested in order to personalize any part of the Site for use by a user would be a similar example.
In all such cases, Diallog will collect only information that is voluntarily provided by the user and undertakes that such information will be kept strictly confidential. Personal individual information provided to Diallog will not be sold or made available to a third party (excepting Diallog’s underlying carriers and service providers) without the individual’s prior written consent except as permitted by applicable legislation.
Diallog does reserve the right, however, to perform statistical analyses of user behaviour and characteristics, in order to measure interest in and use of the various sections of the Site so as to improve design, content, functionality and navigation and to gather marketing information. Only aggregated and anonymized data from these analyses, not individual data, will be used for this purpose.
